Healdsburg—Where Foodies Cool Down

If you’re a foodie, Healdsburg is full of delights, with a range of wines, beers, burgers and haute cuisine. According to the Sonoma website, “Over the past few years, Healdsburg has undergone a renaissance as chic hotels, upscale spas, and hip restaurants have arrived in town. A walkable downtown, with over 30 wine tasting rooms and a vibrant food scene, Healdsburg draws young visitors as well as regulars who return year after year.”

The small town is located in the heart of California’s wine country where three winegrowing regions meet. Residents and visitors alike enjoy breathtaking vistas, world class vintages, chic hotels and small-town charm.

Healdsburg also enjoys  outstanding plumbing, heating and cooling services. Ongaro and Sons is proud to serve our many satisfied customers in Healdsburg.

And for two foot excursions, you can shop like a native at Oakville Grocery. Founded in 1881, it is the longest operating grocery store in California, offering many of the region’s most sought-after food items all in one place. Gather picnic items and enjoy them with a cold drink on the store’s patio.

Guaranteed Comfort No Matter the Weather

Healdsburg has cool, wet winters and warm to hot, dry summers. July temperatures reach 90 degrees: while January are in the high 50s, residences and businesses need effective cooling and heating systems to stay comfortable indoors during these extremes. Which is why our customers in Headlesburg place their trust in Ongaro and Sons to provide no-risk, guaranteed service.

Healdsburg Acts to Prevent Wildfires

California has experienced a tremendous increase in wildfires, the smoke from which further contributes to air pollution.  Healdsburg has a number of high-fire threat areas. Consequently, the city council recently announced a plan to “eliminate the risk of electric utility-caused wildfires through several key elements including vegetation management, line inspections and hardening, equipment maintenance, staffing, de-energization when needed and customer notification and education.”

Besides irritating the eyes and lungs, high levels of smoke particulates can cause serious problems for those with poor health conditions. When outside air is potentially dangerous, Ongaro and Sons has the products you need to breathe easier indoors.

Breathe Easier Outdoors

While Healdsburg is noted for many of its outdoor activities and sights, unfortunately being outdoors means exposure to seasonal allergies. At best it’s annoying to endure a runny nose or headache caused by allergies, especially when the weather is getting better. But in many cases, allergies can pose significant discomfort, and even a health risk.

Ongaro and Sons offers a set of tips to help relieve your allergy suffering. Regular maintenance of your heating and cooling system, including changing air filters, is particularly important to making it easier for you to breathe at home.

Energy Conservation Efforts

The city of Healdsburg is “keenly aware of the importance of using [water] resources efficiently and effectively.” This includes offering residents rebates for qualified water conservation rebates. Leaky faucets and toilets are a significant source of water waste. Thorough inspection of plumbing fixtures and pipes ensures water is being distributed in the most efficient and least wasteful manner.

Another conservation effort involves the efficient operation of heating and cooling systems. Ongaro and Sons offers a variety of best practices both to prepare for winter heating and summer air conditioning.

Duct Cleaning, Repair and Replacement

Central air conditioning and heating are the top energy consumers in most California homes, so ensuring the efficiency of your entire HVAC system can yield big improvements in energy efficiency. When we think about saving energy, we usually focus on the furnace and air conditioner units, but a leaky duct system can reduce your climate control system’s efficiency 20 to 30 percent. These leaks also  bring unwanted dust, unconditioned outdoor air and humidity into your living space and take money straight out of your wallet.

If your home is over seven years old, have your ducts professionally tested by one of our certified Home Energy Rating System (HERS) technicians via an energy audit. If needed, we can do a thorough and effective cleaning, repair or even replace leaky ductwork.

Indoor Air Quality

Ongaro and Sons puts the “V” back into the HVAC. Ventilation is the process of bringing fresh air into your home to replace stale air filled with indoor pollutants such as cooking smells, pet odors and/or tobacco. Proper ventilation is not only key to the efficiency of your home heating and cooling system, but to your indoor air quality and you and your family’s health. While air filters and air fresheners remove particles from circulating, they don’t bring in fresh air. One simple way to correct this is to open doors and windows, but this is not always practical. It also allows outside allergens and pollutants into the house.

Ongaro and Sons offers a number of solutions to increase the quality of your indoor air, including everything from a filtration system to a complete home purification system and fresh air exchanger system. We’re a family-owned business. No one knows better than us the importance of protecting the health of you and your family.
